Same Old Road - 07/21/13 10:15 AM

Here is my latest song with Band in a Box: Same Old Road

I used the Audio track in BIAB to record my singing then changed the Wav file to read "Same Old Road soloist".
This Placed the Audio as a Performance track onto the Soloist Track.
I was then able to re-record the Audio track without having to overdub the Audio.

Lyrics

Here again down this old road
Longing for you all the time
Seems like I have been here before
Your promises dashed on the shore

How I long for your tender touch
To feel your body close to mine
To feel again the warmth of your lips
I think that would be divine

Yeah baby I'm walking down the same old road
Just thinking of you once again

Instrumental

How I long for your tender touch
To feel your body close to mine
To feel again the warmth of your lips
I think that it would be divine

How we danced on that balmy night
Well we danced till the morning light
We held each other so very tight
Baby yeah it felt alright

Fine work here! Very smooth flow, So if I understand correctly all of this was recorded, without leaving biab?

Thanks for sharing!

Hi PgFantastic,

Thanks for your comments.

Yes it was all recorded in BIAB using the Soloist spare track as the main vocal (by changing the Audio Tracks name to Same Old Road Soloist).
Then recording the backing in the Audio Track and adding Harmonies One up.

This saved me from any mistakes (although not all blush) as I could just re-record again keeping the good recording - does that make sense? - what I mean is that if the Audio on the Soloist track is good then I can leave that one alone and record the backing again. Phew...

I like the way you start with the drum, it sets the groove, let's you know what to expect

and I liked the selection of piano too

George,
your voice always reminds me of Roy Orbison. I'd love to hear your version of PRETTY WOMAN

If ever Pretty Woman becomes Public Domain you will be the first to hear my version.
